Explaining Unethical Behaviour among People Motivated To Act Prosocially.
Bersoff, David M.
Journal of Moral Education, v28 n4 p413-28 Dec 1999
Argues that unethical behavior is caused by a corruption of the construal process and is driven by a desire for personal gain and results from an erroneous conclusion that an unethical action is morally acceptable. Contrasts this argument to the constructivist theory of unethical behavior as a moral judgment/behavior breakdown. (CMK)
